Bow Safety

Hunting with a bow is something that takes a lot of skill and energy to do. On account of this, there are just as many, if not more precautions a bow hunter must take in able to hunt safely. Before you go hunting with your bow, you need to make certain that your bow has been thoroughly checked. If the string or wire used on your bow looks frayed, replace it before you are out in the field. While a snapped bow string usually only causes mild welts or cuts, it is always best to have equipment in top shape before going go on your trip. If you are using a bow, you will want to make certain that you have the proper arm guards with you, and that you are wearing them when you notch your arrow and are preparing to kill the animal you are hunting. This helps protect you from injuries due to snapping strings or string rebound.

Another aspect of bow safety that you need to keep in mind is making certain that you have a bow that fits your strength. While being able to pull a heavier bow is considered a badge of honor among many hunters, pulling a bow that is too heavy for you can cause painful injuries that can take a lot of time to heal. If you insist on pulling a heavier bow so you can kill larger prey such as deer, you should take the time and care to work up slowly to the heavier bow. This can help prevent strained or torn muscles in the future.
